Local artist's exhibit on display at Arts on the Slaton Square

Provided by City of Slaton

The "ART of Giving" has a very literal meaning for the community of Slaton, Texas especially as we reach the holiday season. As a small community neighboring the "Hub City" of Lubbock, Texas, they take pride in their heritage and celebrate their local artists from age five and up through their adult years.

The community of Slaton will be hosting their Fifth Friday Arts on the Slaton Square on Nov. 30 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Arts on the Slaton Square begins at the Slaton City Hall with a beautiful art exhibit which encompasses the many talents of the youth within Slaton ISD. Visitors, community members, teachers and business owners are invited to walk the square and experience the true spirit of Slaton's "ART of Giving."

By beginning with Slaton's City Hall, you not only show support for the hard-working Slaton ISD art students, but you will experience a passion for arts that has engulfed this community. From there, make sure you stop by the InBetween Gallery which will include art exhibits from Slaton ISD art teachers Ronelle Howell, Deidra Brooks and Brittany Wright. St. Joseph's School, also located in Slaton, will have student art exhibits displayed in the museum building.

In addition to the local artist's exhibits, there will be many talented artists from Texas Tech University including faculty, alumni, graduate and under-graduate student artists. There will be over 50 artists showing in the various galleries on the Slaton square. Other local galleries along the walk include The Slatonite, DiverCity, Multiplicity, Waters South, Slaton Museum, Slaton Model Railroad Studio, V2 Gallery and Waters North Gallery.

Along with the heritage and love for arts, you will also experience the cool Christmas excitement from local business owner's Christmas décor. Make sure you catch the tour-guided trolley to truly experience the historical contributions of Slaton to West Texas. Expect to go home with a beautiful, hand-made Christmas piece or with a simple warm-spot of Christmas cheer in your heart. Either way, you will leave with a new love for Slaton, TX.
